I guess that just depends on your idea of a sleeper, im looking at 6th or 7th WW pickups, if i can get 100-120Ks from that, Im happy and thats quite a find, particularlly if it comes without sacrificing era, whip, or wins

i dont think youll find a santana on this years wire

I would say Ted Lilly qualifies for sleeper k resource, but he's starting the season on the DL.

One other guy that comes to mind is Runelvys Hernandez. I know he's coming from the grave after major arm issues, but pre-injury he had nasty stuff. He's been pitching this spring with mixed results and is battling for a rotation spot. If he's all the way back he could provide not only K's, but solid numbers across the board with the obvious exception of wins.

Guys who may be available on your wire who will end up with 130+ Ks.

Jeff Francis (180)
Cliff Lee (150)
Woody Williams (130)
Eric Milton (150)
Dan Haren (130)
Adam Eaton (140)
Russ Ortiz (130)
Randy Wolf (140)
Brian Lawrence (130)
Ted Lily (150)
Joel Pinero (140)
Jose Contreras (140)

I like W. Williams, Eric Milton, Adam Eaton, and Randy Wolf the most from this list.

Besides the fact that the above list is filled with crappy guys? Milton doesn't do anything well, but he doesn't do anything poorly either (except HR/9 rate). His bb/9 is okay (2.6), Ks are pretty good 7.1 k/9, ERA right around 4, WHIP just under 1.3, will probably win as many games as he loses in a bad NL central. Average to below average pitcher with good Ks.

He just has less downside then a lot of other pitchers mentioned in that list. Plus he will strike out 150 guys and is probably on this guys waiver wire.
